xorg-macros too old

I'm trying to compile xorg-server- so that I can use the latest
xf86-video-intel module (2.8.1) on my laptop.

I'd like to do the compilation in a test directory first, not installing
anything in the usual paths (/usr/lib, /usr/local/lib, etc.) so that if
anything goes wrong, I can still use my current X.org.

Trying to install randrproto-1.3 (from randrproto-1.3.0.tar.bz2, which I
downloaded from http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/proto/randrproto/) in
/test/intel/dist, I got the following error:

checking if xorg-macros used to generate configure is at least 1.2...
configure: error: configure built with too old of a version of
xorg-macros.m4 - requires version 1.1.0 or newer

however I had installed util-macros-1.3.0 in /test/intel/dist:

$ ls /test/intel/dist/share/aclocal/xorg-macros.m4                      

How can I tell autogen.sh to use the new xorg-macros.m4? I tried giving -B
/test/intel/dist/share/aclocal to autoreconf in autogen.sh, but it seems it
didn't work...
